The Ghost of Sarah Palin Will Haunt

The week before I married on my family’s homestead in Alaska, we found out Sarah Palin had been picked to be Sen. John McCain’s vice-presidential running mate. This was big news for Alaska. Nearly everyone we knew was thrilled, even people who weren’t huge Palin fans. At the time, Palin was a popular governor who’d made a name for herself fighting a corrupt good ol’ boys system that had prevailed for too long in state politics. She was a Republican, but seen as a moderate who was willing to work with Democrats and take on powerful special interests, including the oil companies that held sway in the state capitol.

Comments:

The leftist-media led destruction of Sarah Palin and her family was evil. The way John McCain and his family treated her was inexcusable. He was threatened by her popularity and blamed her for his loss when it was his, and his alone due to his own incompetence.

Doesn't the use of the word "ghost" imply that Sarah Palin is dead? I know it's an analogy, but really?

The only reason I voted for McPain was because of Sarah.

Sarah Palin was an incarnation of the Tea Party. She was not taken out, per se, by democrats but by republicans. Very much like the same republicans who want President Trump gone. The McCain's the Bush's the Romney's the Rubio's and many others hated her.

I'm disgusted by and sorry for the treatment of Governor Palin. When she stepped into the campaign my heart swelled with excitement, hope, and love for her. She brought life and energy to a ticket headed by a weak-yet-arrogant man. She was put through the ringer by Judas types who were supposed to be on OUR side. Yet she always had a smile and an inner light that could not be erased. I was so proud to give her my vote.

In Harris's case, don't have an affair with an older, politically connected married man to climb the political ladder and no one will point it out.

Although not stated in this article, the name Sarah Palin should give the reader a greater appreciation of just how intense the density is and the depths of stupidity reached by Maureen Dowd. Its been 36 years since a woman was on a national ticket for President, indeed.

The only thing we need to reply when the corrupt media says any criticism of Harris is racist or sexist is...'Tell it to Sarah.' (Or make an acronym with her initials.)

Sarah Palin would have made a better POTUS than McCain. Her run was just bad timing because the kenyan god obama was the opponent and the MSM was obliged to help him fight with "jungle rules."

The demonrats just had to destroy Sarah. When they saw her give her acceptance speech at the convention they knew that they were probably looking at the first female US president and they couldn’t allow a Republican to have that honor.

It could only haunt the media if they cared at all about propriety. Since they discarded all pretenses in that regard, it would depend on their conscience. And since they have none (and nobody to hold them to account for it), the collective reaction to this is probably, "Sarah who".

Ruth Bader Ginsburg's final weeks have been described by friends and relatives, who told of her remarkable vigor, and their shock at her death on Friday.

Those who had been in touch with Ginsburg or her staff recently said she seemed to be coping with treatment for cancer and also making plans for events months away. Mary Hartnett, one of her two authorized biographers, visited Ginsburg in mid-August at her longtime home in the Watergate apartment

Portland police declared yet another riot Tuesday night on the 83rd consecutive day of protests after a 200-strong mob of protesters torched the city's famous Multnomah Building. The group had marched to the county seat of government for the first time, smashing windows and sparking a blaze by pushing lit newspapers through the windows. One image shows the protesters had marked a window to the building with the graffiti: 'Aim here.' Demonstrations that often turn violent have racked Oregon's biggest city for more than two months following the police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis.

Four former top Republicans formally backed Joe Biden at Monday night's virtual Democratic National Convention festivites, with 2016 GOP hopeful John Kasich promising his fellow party members that the Democrat wouldn't become too liberal. 'I'm sure there are Republicans and independents who couldn't imagine crossing over to support a Democrat, they fear Joe may turn sharp left and leave them behind. I don't believe that,' Kasich said. 'Because I know the measure of the man - reasonable, faithful, respectful and you know, no one pushes Joe around.'

We were led to believe right out of the gate that racist white cops hunted down and seized this chocolate-tinted gentle giant for no other reason than the color of his skin, slammed him to the ground, and then knelt on his neck long enough to asphyxiate him despite his repeated pleas that he couldn’t breathe.

Former President Barack Obama issued a statement late Friday night on the passing of Supreme Court Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. The statement was posted to the online site Medium.In the statement, Obama demanded the Republican controlled Senate not vote on any replacement for Ginsburg until a new president is sworn following the November presidential election. Obama cited his failed 2016 nomination of Judge Merrick Garland to back up his support for Ginsburg’s reported dying “instructions” that her replacement be nominated by a new president (“My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed.”)

NPR reported that Ginsburg “dictated” the following statement to her granddaughter Clara Spera: “My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed.” “The very last dying wish of RBG was that her vacancy not be filled until the new president takes office in January. That was her dying wish,” Ocasio-Cortez said on Friday.

As news of the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg spread, the left-wing twittersphere exploded. Ginsburg was widely seen as single-handedly holding back the blood-thirsty reactionary Trump-crazy hordes. The Independent’s Holly Baxter lamented: “Sometimes it felt like she was America’s last hope.” Ginsburg’s passing loosed fear, frustration, anger, and defiance among the liberal legions. The politics of her replacement immediately dominated their thoughts. Many cited as holy doctrine her comment, reported by her granddaughter: “My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed.” Others insisted that if Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell

A leading Democratic activist and former adviser to Hillary Clinton argued on Friday that President Trump's replacement for Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will inevitably be "illegitimate." "Any Supreme Court with a Trump justice confirmed to Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s seat at this point in the calendar would be fundamentally illegitimate, and Democrats must be prepared to act accordingly," Brian Fallon, who served as press secretary for the Clinton campaign, tweeted Friday. Fallon added early Saturday morning that Democrats should add seats to the nation's highest court if the "GOP rams Trump pick" through the Senate.
